Back in 2007, the European Commission established the European Research Council (ERC) with the aim of encouraging excellent frontier research in Europe through competitive funding, supporting top researchers of all nationalities across all fields.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the ERC

Several scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have received ERC grants in recent years. To celebrate the ERC’s 10th anniversary, we would like to share a series of interviews with three of them. The scientists not only describe their research but also explain what the ERC Grant meant to them both personally and in terms of their career.
